Interspill 2012, the European oil spill conference and exhibition, took place from 13-15 March 2012 in London, United Kingdom. The IOPC Funds’ Secretariat is a member of the steering committee which organised the event, which was attended by more than 1200 visitors. The Director, the Head of the Claims Department/ Technical Advisor and the Head of External Relations and Conference Department presented or chaired sessions at the conference. The Secretariat also had a stand at the exhibition, which attracted a large number of visitors seeking further information on the work of the organisation or requesting guidance on the claims process and admissibility criteria. The event was preceded by a small number of training courses on Monday 12 March 2012. The IOPC Funds’ Secretariat, together with ITOPF and a P&I Club (Skuld), ran a claims and compensation short course attended by 16 participants from different backgrounds, including lawyers and representatives from government and industry. The event was very successful and beneficial to the IOPC Funds to enhance further the profile of the international oil pollution compensation regime.
